Very few people are willing to continue giving up their freedoms of privacy and freedom of movement. All this technology is great for the purposes that the big companies try to sell to us, but doing so makes us prisoners in our own cabs. Allowing the government to monitor our every move in our cabs is a precursor to them monitoring us in our homes. Even thought to a certain extent they already do. Everyday some company comes out with some new technology or gadget with bells and whistles that some bureaucrat falls in love with. However, it is nothing more than another means of controlling the population. There has to be a point where enough is enough and we free citizens say no more. Continue to add all this technology and monitoring and you will continue to see drivers leave the industry. Already the senior most experienced drivers are leaving because they do not want nor will they allow EOBR's, Electronic Logs, Dash Cameras or anything else that they see as an invasion on their freedoms. So, if you want to rebuild the driver workforce; stop all the intrusive monitoring, video taping and control.
